Pride of Place for Schools Gardening Scheme

Pride of Place for Schools Gardening Scheme

The aim of the School Pride of Place Schools Gardening Scheme Initiative is to provide school children the opportunity to learn about, and be active in some level of gardening (flowers, vegetables, etc.)

Through this experience, children may develop a greater sense of citizenship and care for the environment which may stay with them for their entire lives.

The 2019 scheme is now closed for applications and will reopen in late January 2020.
